Clans of the Alphane Moon by Philip K. Dick:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas
The inhabitants of Alpha III M2 are all former inmates in a psychiatric institution for colonists of Alpha Centauri system. Loss of contact with Earth has resulted in the formation of groups (or clans or castes) of individuals based on psychiatric diagnosis. Can Chuck Rittersdorf, CIA operative and sit-com writer, rid himself of his wife Mary using a remote-controlled simulacrum, helped by his telepathic Ganymedean slime mold neighbor, Lord Running Clam?
